The other day, driving to the accursed OfficeMax (NEVER shop at OfficeMax, folks — NEVER!), we passed by Mars Hill Church, a hipster congregation that nonetheless produces some real social activism. I commented to Sumer that if I weren’t a Mormon, I could see myself attending a congregation like that. On the other hand, I remarked, I could also see myself as Catholic — very European, with a profound history, systematic theology, and the Apostolic See.
Sumer had a different take.
She replied, “I’d convert to Judaism.” When that got an eyebrow raise, she continued, “they seem very family-focused. And everyone knows Jewish men are the most romantic.”
With that, the minivan cruised past Mars Hill Church and continued to OfficeMax. Hence this poll, out of nothing more than idle curiosity. If you weren’t Mormon, what denomination would you be?
NOTE: the LDS Church is the stone cut without hands which filled the whole Earth. It’s not going away. But sometimes people just need a poll.
